Fishy

“This photo was unearthed recently from a photo album, that had remained unseen for the past 20 years. No one in the family has any recollection of when and where this photo was taken, including my mother, the person gutting the fish. In fact, up until recently seeing this photo, she would have told you she had never gutted a fish. She also asks: “Why am i wearing sunglasses? And that bandanna?” This would be an amazing photo in itself, without the absurd addition of the mystery hands (no one knows who’s hands these are!), giving the sink a good plunge. As you do, when the person next to you is feverishly gutting a fish!”

Doing The Dinosaur

“My niece, in the photo, has a huge fixation with dinosaurs. She takes this one EVERYWHERE she goes (except school because they won’t allow it at the school & it won’t fit in her cubby). Her father, in pic, took her to the father/daughter dance and Choppers came along too!

Joy & Pain

‘Im the sorry looking one in this photo, along with my two younger bothers and mom. First Christmas after my parents divorced, and I probably didn’t get the legos I was hoping for. Merry Christmas!”

Santa Claws

“The memories around this pic are fuzzy, I suspect that I have blocked out Santa trying to lift my shirt and/or pinch my nipple. If I had to guess, I was probably around four years old (1979). Clearly, I am horrified by the look on my face.”

Fish Fingers

“Here’s my Dad. Moments before this photo was taken, he was stood proudly showing off his catch.”

Flu Shot

“Our family went for flu shots. Our 13 year old daughter just couldn’t handle the idea of getting a shot, not before, during or after. We decided to take a picture after our vaccination. She just wouldn’t stop crying.”

Sweater Vest

“This is my husband Drew, his grandmother would make him a sweater vest every year. Obviously He really loved his grandmother!”
